Sorry for being a "pain" about this, but I believe some of us still have
the preference of "Community Edition" or "Community Unsupported".

It has been explained several times that the label is not supposed to
please community members, but is supposed to communicate to the outside

So, I have explained why "community" is not a good choice, because
inside the open source community is distinctive for a version with less
features from an "open core" project (and LibreOffice is not open core)
and outside the open source community has a different meaning, which is
misleading for non technical users of desktop software.

Should these not also be part of the list? Or have they been discounted
as possible labels? If they have been dropped as possible terms, by what
process would they have been dropped and by whom?

They message I have just sent to the mailing list explains why many
labels have been dropped. Based on the discussion, the focus is now on
the concept of a "rolling" release, and "community", "personal", and
other labels are not in line with this focus.

Should not the final decision go to a membership vote? I am assuming it
would be strange for the board to go against a membership decision?

My task is to put together a marketing plan which works, then the board
may decide in a different direction (IMHO, using the "community" label
would make the marketing plan uselss and would not allow to reach the
objective, which is the sustainability of the project).
